Before Gabe and I even had kids or were even pregnant, we had baby names picked out. Four to be exact. Two girls and two boys.
Well, here were are 7+ years later finding it hard to name this baby. Alena and Christian were easy but this one is different. We'd love to have a name meaning that actually means something to us and has something to do with the struggle it took to have this child.
The names I come up with, Gabe doesn't like. This names he comes up with, I don't like. And then the name we had selected long ago for a girl just doesn't appeal much to me anymore.
And until we come up with a name on our own, I don't want to throw any names out there for others to voice their opinion about and change our minds. Fortunately for us, we still have 6+ months to figure it out.
We are also finding that we keep putting girl names out there (probably because that's what we think this baby is?) and no boy names. I'm looking for a name that can't be shortened, has more than one syllable, and means something to our personal struggle to get pregnant, isn't too popular but nothing you haven't heard before, and can't really be abbreviated or made fun of.
Yeah I know, we have our work cut out for us. AHH!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet
